We often hear our customers saying, ‘London is the place to be!’ Well it certainly is, although how often do you hear people speak about the accommodation they have been staying at during their trip to our glorious capital? Often, you’ll find people saying, ’Where we stayed was okay but very expensive for what we got.’ Or maybe something along these lines, ‘Mmm, yes well, the place wasn’t large enough to swing a cat round and it was way out of the centre of the city.’
We, here at Euracom, have done our very best to ensure that none of these adverse comments apply to us. We can proudly say, from the positive feedback that we have received over the years, from a substantial number of clients, that Euracom provides just what the customer needs, great service, great apartments in prime locations with great, competitive prices.
We love hearing such positive feedback- it means an awful lot to us and it’s what makes our job worthwhile. For we know that although we can extol the virtues of all our apartments, saying how economical and fabulous they are and then tell you how great our service is, there is no better testimonial to our efforts than when you take the trouble to send us your incredible comments, recommending that Euracom is only place to go for an affordable, yet comfortable stay.
Here are just a few of the comments which have delighted us, coming from all over the world.
‘Thank you Euracom, we have had a wonderful stay in your apartment. It is very convenient, clean, near to lots of great sites and very comfortable. Thank you for your service. We visited the London Eye and plenty of other places and had a very nice journey in London. We will warmly recommend you to our friends and family‘
Doron Stein, Israel
‘From the outset, thank you for making our London visit a pleasurable experience! What we liked about dealing with Euracom is there was no pressure whatsoever and Robert was very patient with us - that helped build trust. We inspected the apartment prior to confirming the same - again, no pressure whatsoever. The process of booking the apartment was simple, transparent and quick. Our request for credit card payment was accommodated, which made it very easy. Wendy at Endsleigh Court was very helpful and showed us two apartment options. When we arrived at the apartment, everything was in order! The apartment was beyond our expectation, very clean, airy, lots of light and ventilation. Overall, it was a fantastic experience dealing with Robert as well as the team at Endsleigh Court. Special shout out for Wendy and the front desk team at Endsleigh Court who were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend both Euracom and Endsleigh Court to friends and family and look forward to our future stays there.‘
Vaishali Jaising, India
‘The booking process through Euracom was easy and our e-mail enquiries were always answered quickly with helpful, clear answers. The apartment itself was comfortable and suitable for our needs in a great location. I would recommend Euracom to my friends and family.‘
Michael and Juliana Whiteman, Australia
‘I would absolutely recommend working with Euracom. The staff always quickly answered our demands, we really appreciated their help on many occasions and we cannot wait to book with them again!‘
Shlomo Hauser, Israel
‘Dear Euracom A Home in London - I have used Euracom for over 9 years now and I can say without a doubt it has been amazing on all of my holiday trips. I usually stay at Hampden house, which you refer to as budget, but I call it luxury for the simple fact it’s clean, it’s spacious and the location is great. The speed that you respond to enquiries, complaints or requests is amazing, you are so professional in everything you do. From bookings to check in‘s, to staying in, to the departure, everything is faultless. The staff are always so lovely, polite and kind. You always make us feel like royalty. I have stayed in many other apartments in London over the years, however none of them compare to the service that you provide us with. Last month, I had to stay in Bloomsbury because Hampden House was not available, they made sure I got the best services and the flat was spotless. I have recommended Euracom to loads of friends and family and they always call back to say thank you! I also wanted to use this as a great opportunity to say a big thank you to Kelly, who is always finding a way to accommodate me and my budget, Robert, Joe and Tania for all their continued help. You have given my family a home in London.‘
‘It’s been a pleasure dealing with Euracom. Response time is very good. Your prices are reasonable for your locations. I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends.‘
Enitan Solarin, Nigeria
‘We would like to thank all of you at Euracom for a first -class service and hopefully we will meet up again in the not too distant future‘.
Mike Ryan, Argentina
‘Thanks for the great service again, Euracom. My queries were promptly answered and the staff at the apartment were also very co-operative and helpful. I will certainly get in touch with you next time I‘m travelling to London‘.
Farzana Ali, India
‘I have found booking through Euracom an easy experience. The apartments have always been clean and comfortable with everything needed, and the staff at Euracom and at Endsleigh Court have always been friendly and helpful and the rates are very reasonable.‘
Robert Brian Bunton, Australia
‘ Great accommodation, prime location, excellent service and helpful staff. Rented a 3- bedroom apartment and it felt like home within first night! Top service, with hotel-like amenities but within the comfort of a cosy home.‘
Samar Mokbel, Lebanon
‘We have stayed in your Bloomsbury apartments more than once... It is one of our favourite places in London for many reasons: it is somewhere between a hotel and an apartment, with some of the advantages of each. It is very well located, clean and the staff are very friendly. The price is very fair and all in all it is always a very positive experience coming back. We have recommended Euracom to others and will continue to do so.‘
Ahuva Passow-Whitman, Israel
‘ Our stay in London was most enjoyable... From our initial enquiry, Euracom were very helpful with our apartment selection and booking. The reception staff were also very accommodating and welcoming. The apartment itself was clean and comfortable, perfect for our needs and plenty of room for our family of four. The location was ideal being within walking distance of public transport, parks, restaurants and shops. We will certainly contact Euracom again for future bookings.‘
Neil Bennie, Australia
‘Well, what can we say? With such fabulous reviews why go anywhere else? The evidence speaks for itself! For a service second to none, with spacious apartments, conveniently situated near to Central London, there is no better place than Euracom to book your next holiday or business trip. We’ll guarantee you the trip of a lifetime, without breaking the bank! (Although we don’t recommend you swinging any cats around to test the size of our apartments, they will speak for themselves!)‘

As a new academic year approaches many thousands of ‘freshers’ and ‘seasoned’ students will be arriving in the capital to begin, or continue their studies at university.
For students new to London, this can be a nerve-wracking, possibly scary, yet none the less exciting experience. Student life can take a little adapting to, (for starters - Mum won’t be around to do your laundry) although once you are used to it, it will be well worth all the trouble.
Whether you are coming to London from abroad or indeed from somewhere else in Britain, moving away from your home and loved ones may seem pretty daunting at first, especially if you haven’t lived independently before. However your student days will fly by, with a plethora of things to see and do in your free time, and by following a few golden rules you’ll make your stay a really enjoyable one.
- Watch your budget!
Whilst moving to the capital is undoubtedly exciting, it can be expensive! Often students can fall into the trap of taking in everything the city offers and blowing their budget all in one go! So try to keep track of your outgoings to avoid losing track of the amount you spend. Sticking to a budget is imperative if you have limited funds at your disposal, so remember to check your bank balance at regular intervals to avoid any problems. You can still have fun as a student by perhaps setting aside an amount for socialising!
- Do your research!
Take time to make a list of your likely outgoings whilst at uni. Possibilities include;- rent, course fees and books, utility bills like phone, heating, water rates, internet electricity, TV licence, food travel and clothing etc. It’s far better to overestimate your spending and be pleasantly surprised rather than being faced with higher bills that you had bargained for. Once done, you can save money by searching out cheaper places to eat/drink, along with bargain shops which offer lower priced necessities.
- Stay Safe!
Students are notorious for burning the midnight oil and the city has numerous events on offer which provide them with the opportunity to meet other people who have travelled from far and wide to study in London. This said, you need to ensure that you stay safe, whether it be in your student accommodation or when travelling home, after meeting friends. So learn to be ‘street wise’ by keeping to well- lit main roads, avoiding walking alone at night, being aware of your surroundings, keeping your property out of sight and ensuring you and your friends check up on each other to ensure they’ve arrived home safely. London is a very safe place, especially with our excellent transport network, but like any big city, it's worth taking a few sensible precautions. Better safe than sorry!
With so many attractions and facilities at your disposal, London provides students with the perfect base for trying new hobbies and activities. From music, comedy, theatre and fashion, to art, history and sport, London has it all.
After securing your place at your chosen university, the next step is to find affordable accommodation. Although in their first year, many students stay in Halls of residence within their university, many will find that in subsequent years they want to ‘spread their wings’ and live a more independent life, opting for a student rental. However it can be difficult finding the perfect, safe London apartment for rent, close to your university/ college with everything that you need to support you through the term time, especially if you are on a tight budget.
That’s where Euracom can help! We have both the knowledge and expertise to help you find your perfect, yet affordable student apartment. With over 35 years’ experience providing apartment rental services to all types of clientele, including students, we’ll make sure you get a first rate service at a most competitive rate.

apartment, close to your university or college and with all the amenities you’ll need. We’ll uncover all the very best apartments for you, then we’ll call you to finalise the details of your stay in London.

London - The Greatest City on Earth!
When you embark on a holiday to our magnificent capital you’ll be taking in one of the most visited and international cities on earth. With its 2000 years of historical influence, cultural diversity, fine food establishments and wonderful vibrant atmosphere, London has something for everyone.
Throughout the centuries London has been city of ideas. The city’s ability to evolve and move with the times has enabled it to embrace and develop into the innovative landscape of original thinking and creativity that it is today. This is essentially one of the many reasons why London has always been such a special place to visit, and indeed live in, and plays an enormous part in why London stands out as being one of the greatest cities in the world.
These innovators, with ‘larger than life’ imaginations, are responsible not only for a wealth of state of the art, architecturally designed buildings such as The Shard and The Gherkin, but also independent contemporary art, (London is the performing arts capital of the world), literature, (authors like Dickens, Orwell and Oscar Wilde make London the world’s greatest literary centre), pioneering music, (London has a marvellous musical heritage – with greats like Bowie, Adele, Queen and George Michael originating here. Added to this the spectacular amount of theatrical masterpieces on offer within London’s theatre land, and you have it all.
So what else attracts visitors to the best city in the world? Aside from our world class theatre, amazing art galleries and cosmopolitan multi- cultural society, 80% of visitors say their main reason for coming to London is ‘culture and heritage’. Incredibly, cultural tourism generates almost £3½ billion a year for London’s economy and visitor numbers continue to grow. Yet the city still has to endeavour to maintain its position internationally, as many other destinations around the globe are promoting cultural strategies to attract the discerning traveller.
This said, London has something that many other countries don’t possess. The pomp, circumstance and pageantry that only Britain can pull off! Take for example the Royal Wedding in May of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, at Windsor Castle. This iconic event attracted millions to London to celebrate the romantic coupling of an adored British Prince and his glamorous bride. The historical significance of such venues, along with the popularity of our Royal Family, provide a significant benefit to our tourist industry and economy. It’s a known fact that 9 out of 10 trips to London incorporate visits to the city’s top 20 cultural attractions.
So here are several more reasons why London can assuredly call itself ‘the greatest city on Earth.’
Centuries of History
London can boast more than 2,000 years of history, and the London landscape bears testament to more iconic and historically important buildings and landmarks than pretty much anywhere in the world. With Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London and Westminster Abbey, to name just three of these marvels, it’s no surprise that travellers journey from across the world to experience the wonder and majesty of these venues.
Free Cultural Experiences
Though some London attractions have a reputation for being expensive, especially if you have a large family, visitors are regularly extremely surprised that many of the city’s cultural venues are actually free. Unlike the national museums in Paris, New York and Rome where tourists pay an entrance fee, London’s museums, like the Natural History, Science, Victoria and Albert, Tate Modern, National Gallery and the Imperial War Museum are all absolutely free! We are one of the few cities in the world where you’ll be able to witness grand masterpieces and prehistoric historic exhibitions without opening your wallet! What’s more, London’s 2012 Olympic Games saw the city’s popularity skyrocket as a result of visitors being impressed by the value for money they received in the capital. This has been endorsed by producer and artist Will.i.am, (William Adams), who says…. “London is my favourite city on the planet — it’s the cosmopolitan and ‘melting pot’ feel of it all, the open-mindedness to difference and culture. And the whole city is a world-class museum, outdoors and indoors.” A fine endorsement!
London’s Green Spaces
Even though London is a bustling ‘working city’ which attracts large conglomerations of financial and other industries, there are over 5000 acres of amazing green spaces across eight London parks. Hyde Park, for instance, set deep in the heart of London, offers both world-class concerts and events together with plenty of quiet places to unwind and relax. Alternatively, Richmond Park is the largest the eight Royal Parks and the biggest enclosed space in London. Here you’ll find the lovely Isabella Plantation and Pembroke Lodge, along with wonderful herds of Red and Fallow deer. All London parks are free and open daily.
London as a whole has over 8½ million trees, 300,000 gardens and acres upon acres of green space, not only making it one of the prettiest cities in the world, but also enabling it to boast more green spaces than any other European city. Whatever the weather or season, London is always enchantingly beautiful.
Reflection and Respect
London’s recent, and not so recent history, has given Londoners a long held reputation for perseverance, courage and grit in the face of adversity and sorrow. Acclaimed pioneering cultural projects, attracting both intense media coverage, along with over 5 million tourists, have helped us to reflect on such historical events, whilst raising many millions for charity. In 2014 an installation at the Tower of London of 888,246 ceramic hand-made poppies, provided the perfect setting to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. The creative project demonstrated a poignant perspective on a world event and provided a place to reflect and respect those who fell in one of the most beautiful, historic London landmarks. Something for which, we are justly proud.
Continuing on this theme, another sad, yet positive aspect that makes London such a fabulous place is its incredible resilience. Although it has always been, and still remains, one of the safest destinations in the world to visit, recent tragedies such as the London Bridge Bombing at Borough Market will remain etched on our hearts forever. However, Londoners are a particularly defiant crowd and whatever life throws at us, business will continue as normal. A major benefit of visiting London is still the safety aspect however, as many other capital cities are far more dangerous.
British tradition, values and democracy.
Representing over 1000 years of this is our dear Queen Elizabeth. She not only provides Britain with incredible stability and important British values, but is also a testament to our wonderful democratic nation. The Royals, and especially Her Majesty, are undoubtedly important assets to our country and the reason why so many oversees visitors wish to come to experience these traditions for themselves.
Our glorious capital is home to a wealth of shopping delights, whatever your budget. For high end stores you have the wonderful Selfridges, Harrods and Fortnum and Mason, to name just a few, whilst many more fine retailers are just a stone’s throw away in the famous Oxford and Regent Streets. Alternatively for the quirkier gift you could head off to the historic Covent Garden or one of London’s finest markets. Here you’ll not only find some of the best retail therapy around, but also something else London is renowned for, its multi- cultural cuisine. From the traditional English fish and chips, to pasta, curries and a wealth of other delicious delicacies from all over the world, all available at a very reasonable cost. For something fancier, there are a multitude of fine dining establishments throughout the capital, many boasting ‘celebrity chefs’ and Michelin Stars. All are well worth a visit, showing the capital can provide something to suit everyone’s budget.
The Great British Pub
Were you aware that you’re apparently never more than 7 metres from a pub in London? This fact isn’t one that I’ve tested, although it’s a fact that there are well over 7,000 pubs to choose from in the capital. From themed bars to roof top terraces offering anything from craft beers to exotic cocktails, a visit to London isn’t complete without a great British pint! As an alternative to a traditional pub, you could sample the delights of ‘Attendant’, a quirky Victorian toilet which was given a makeover in 2013 and is now perfect for a daytime drink! No one but the British could think up something so novel and extreme, making it another reason why London is so uniquely great.
A Great Multi- Cultural Society
Another thing that makesLondon so special, and indeed puts the ‘Great’ into Great Britain, is that it’s one of the most multicultural cities/countries in the world. Our capital is now home to over 270 nationalities and 300 languages. For many hundreds of years London has researched, studied and collected items from all over the world, making these and the research about them available to everyone. Our great museum displays perfectly express how London has always retained a healthy openness to every society’s ideas, doctrines and discoveries. Similarly, the UK has also welcomed many different cultures and peoples of the world into our cities, making them truly multicultural. Visitors to London will evidence this in many ways, from the comprehensive, worldwide cuisine which is available, to the vibrant communities like China Town within the heart of the capital, making London such a great place to be. In visiting London, whatever your nationality, every tourist will find something familiar, as well as be able to explore the whole world in just one city. Of course there are other global cities, although it’s only in London that you’ll experience and meet people from all over the globe and with them enjoy their theatre, food and music and witness the incredible range of wonderful things that they’ve produced.
A trip to London is actually a walkers paradise, even though for those less energetic there is an excellent public transport network including the famous London bus and underground system. On foot though, you’ll be able to experience all the vibrancy, nostalgia and heritage that London can offer. There’s certainly nothing better than a stroll along the River Thames, which has been meandering through the city since Roman times. Its historic significance won’t be lost on you, and can be enhanced by taking a river boat along this iconic, ancient waterway, to find out more about London’s glorious past.
So why visit London?
Let’s face it tourists don’t generally visit for the weather! However what does attract them is our glorious culture. All the above things and more should tempt you to pay this special, deeply cosmopolitan capital city a visit. From free national museums, historic royal residences and vibrant markets, to the abundance of green spaces across the city, here you’ll be able to enjoy the fantastic range of cultural activities on offer and tailor your visit to your own personal inspiration and connection, desires and interests. You’ll be able to appreciate the ancient alongside the modern and witness London as the world’s number one city for its enormous variety of authentic historical sites and museums- far more than our rivals, as well as its culture and leisure activities and indeed its numerous hidden gems.
You certainly won’t cover all London has to offer in one hit, although once you’ve been hooked on your first visit by our capital’s cultural icons, which are a major part of London’s appeal, and discovered about the past and its legacy, you’ll definitely have a thirst for more and will want to return.
When you do, you can further explore why London’s art fairs, world famous carnivals like Notting Hill, Frieze London and Frieze Masters have attracted so much attention and attendance over the years. The influence of heritage and culture on how ‘attractive’ a city is certainly a key feature which accentuates why people regard London as a city of eclecticism and international appeal. From the old masters and antiquities to modern design and the art of today, there is always a plethora of new and exciting things to see and do in the city, and more importantly something for every pocket, which encourages visitors to revisit again and again. Return visitors to London are willing to go further to experience unique and unusual new attractions. London can offer these in abundance. Take, for example, the city’s range of ‘Late’ events, occurring many of London’s museums and galleries. Here you can immerse yourself in a shared, one-off, cultural experience with a difference.
So why not visit London for the best experience in the world? With 40 million visits to cultural institutions, 14.6 million theatre attendances, 4 world heritage sites, 857 art galleries and 349 live music venues last year alone, it’s definitely THE PLACE TO BE! 16.8 million overseas visitors, nearly 60% of which have made repeat visits, can’t be wrong! So go on….give London a try!
